Jason Bay interested in remaining a Red Sox

Jason Bay’s agents suggested that their client would be receptive to discussions of a long-term deal to remain in Boston beyond the 2009 season. Bay is due a salary of $7.5 million in 2009, the fourth and final year of an $18.25 million deal he inked with the Pirates prior to the 2006 season.
Bay, who turned 30 in September, excelled after arriving in Boston, hitting .293 with a .370 OBP and .897 OPS while hitting nine homers and driving in 37. He also hit .341 with three homers, nine RBIs and a 1.105 OPS in his first playoff experience.

“It’s a situation where he’s loving Boston. It’s a great club and a great organization,” said Nez Balelo of Creative Artists Agency. “He’s a quality player, and I’m sure (the Red Sox) recognize that. Whatever they want to do, I’m sure that we’re all ears.”
